    Hi folks,

    Is there anyone who has their I7500 flashed with GAOSP instead of an original firmware (for day to day use), and if so, what's your experience?

    I'm probably not the only one who's fed up waiting for Samsung to do a proper release of 2.X, I'd much rather have a community backed, 100% stock android system... (I don't really see the point of mods that install other homescreen software, loads of programs I'll never use, while I just want the bugs in stock android 1.5 fixed or an upgrade to 2.1)

    tried, GAOSP 2.1 is good, I just wait the CAM app is includes in Further BETA.
    some minor bugs not affecting me, I didn't encounter a serious battery drain when I was using GAOSP Beta 7, but the battery life is shorter than IL3 (1.5) or JB2 (1.6).

    Performance so far was ok, you need to understand i7500 is running with 528MHz CPU + 192MB ram only.

    You can upgrade to JB2 or IL3 if you don't want a beta.

    gaosp is nice in the things that work.

    3d, videos, camera, bt, secured apps on the market don't work.

    Can anyone compare applications loading speed between 1.5/1.6 and GAOSP?

    Since I've flashed to JB2 (now JC4), I got big lag when starting Handcent or any other app,...I can wait every app, but not for SMS :(

    Mordred,

    Sorry to say I had the same thing. Wipe / Factory reset from the recovery menu resolved it. Obviously that then means you have to restore all your settings again. God Bless Titanium Backup. :)

    It is worth it, as JC4 is noticably faster than any 1.5 / glaxo / Jb2 etc.. that I have tried.

    I can also spell. which makes me 2-0 with you.

    Seriously, give the man time. It will be out when it's out, and a link will be posted both on the gaosp site and in this website.

    I installed 2.1 before and have certain observations: 1. kamera does not work. 2.the reproduction video does not have picture only that sound. 3 I could not syghronise the telephone with google, it gave continuity fault.4 I could not charge the applications google according to the directives gaosp (possibly I am to blaim also i for this). At other I liked a lot and I want to say one I thank in the gaosp for effort that makes also the time that it dedicates for this.I wait for the next publication him to try.
    thanks gaosp

    @voulis

    this is all knowen missing parts in the public BETA, except the google sync wich seems to be caused by not restoring google apps correctly which is for sure you are to blame for... ;-)

    Is google sync safe? I mean, If I sync with my google account on gaosp, will I still be able to return to another firmware (say, jc2) and sync? (there were rumors earlier on that you should create a new google account)

    he reason for that is because of the market and not because of the synch
    the market caches info on your phone kernal version and doesnt seem to drop it so when you return back to 1.5 you cannot see all the 1.5 stuff

    I have not tried the beta because of this, but does anyone know if it happens going from 2.1 back to 1.6 (Instead of 1.5)

    Thanks
